Maxar Technologies Awards Contract To SolAero Technologies

Will Supply Supply Solar Power Modules To Maxar Technologies For NASA's Power And Propulsion Element

SolAero Technologies has been awarded a contract by Maxar Technologies to power the Power and Propulsion Element of NASA's Gateway. Under the terms of the contract, SolAero will design and manufacture Solar Power Modules (SPMs) that will supply nearly 70 kilowatts to the Gateway as part of NASA's Artemis lunar exploration plans, which will enable future missions to Mars.

The SPMs will be designed and manufactured in SolAero's state-of-the-art production facility in Albuquerque, NM.  The SPMs will incorporate SolAero's latest generation, quadruple-junction "Z4J" solar cells, which exhibit superior radiation hardness in the space environment, and utilize automated assembly methods pioneered by SolAero for high-volume production of satellite solar panels and modules.

"SolAero has had the honor of participating in over 30 NASA missions in our 20 year history and we're once again very proud to have the opportunity to support NASA on a trailblazing endeavor," said Brad Clevenger, President and CEO of SolAero. "We're also excited to continue working with our longtime partners at Maxar to bring our latest generation solar cell technology and advanced manufacturing capability to the Power and Propulsion Element."

"In order to deliver revolutionary space infrastructure and Earth intelligence capabilities to our customers, Maxar carefully chooses strategic partners who embrace innovation, experience, and efficiency," said Mike Gold, Maxar's Vice President of Civil Space. "We're delighted to add SolAero as a supplier on the Power and Propulsion Element spacecraft."
